Can Danes Stun England at Parken?

Denmark have been an underrated international football team for several years and they regularly punch above their weight when it comes to major tournaments. For example, they only lost to Croatia on penalties in the 2018 World Cup and the latter reached the final.

The Danes are the outsiders to win this match at the Parken Stadium on 8 September 2020, although Kasper Hjulmand is a new manager who will be hoping for his team to produce a bright performance and justify why they are among the elite in Nations League A.

Christian Eriksen has been the leading star for Denmark over the past few years and the Internazionale midfielder has an excellent scoring record for his country, while Thomas Delaney also operates at a high level for Borussia Dortmund and the same can be said for RB Leipzig’s Yussuf Poulsen and Barcelona’s Martin Braithwaite.

Why Are England Favourites for Copenhagen Clash?

England will benefit in this away game by not having to contend with a partisan crowd, although they do have the issue of having played a first away game in Reykjavik before travelling to Denmark and it’s likely that Gareth Southgate will make several changes to the team that played in the first match.

Even so, one would imagine that we’ll see some excellent players representing the visitors and perhaps Marcus Rashford will get the nod if he has to play second fiddle to Sancho and Sterling the first time around.

One can’t help but feel that the visitors are lacking some steel in midfield due to Jordan Henderson not being present, with 21-year-old Declan Rice the most experienced operator in that position and he has just seven caps.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

We’re not completely sold on England to win this game, especially if they land a victory in Iceland which would mean another three points is less imperative. Southgate will be mindful of the fact that club managers will want players to be used sparingly and we can therefore look at a few options where we side against the visitors.

Consider Denmark on the Asian Handicap betting when the odds are confirmed, with the Danes capable of keeping things tight against these sort of opponents. On a similar note, let’s go for Under 2.5 Goals and back both defences to be on top with the likes of Kane and Sancho likely to be used sparingly for the second game.

Denmark will want to keep a solid shape against a team capable of tearing them apart although we would anticipate this game is played more like a friendly than a competitive tussle.
